        on of their best albums ever.

        Their fourth and final multiplatinum album in the USA with 4 million shipped copies.
        This was when they had their had their peak. Good and fun album with rock and glam rock.

        This album you can from begin to end.

          I've picked up the 25th anniversaries for Document, Green, Time and Automatic. I can't wait until this comes up next. Also, people hated this one? Everyone I knew loved it, but that was kind of before the whole internet being big so my world was kind of small as a child, so.
